Experimental observation of beams’ self-deflection appearing with two-dimensional spatial soliton propagation in bulk Kerr material

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The observation of two-dimensional optical spatial solitons in three-dimensional Kerr media requires the use of a two-beam interference technique to stabilize the nonlinear propagation. It is shown that as the spatial soliton is self-trapped, the two interfering beams attract each other. This intensity-dependent self-deflection has been applied to the shortening of picosecond laser pulses.
